Add string encoding for ISO/IEC 8859-2 (ENC_ISO_8859_2)

Should code points in the range 0x80-0x9F map to 0x80-0x9F?


claims (without citing a reference inline) that

        The ISO/IEC 8859-n encodings only contain printable characters, and were designed to be used in conjunction 
with control characters mapped to the unassigned bytes. To this end a series of encodings registered with the IANA add 
the C0 control set (control characters mapped to bytes 0 to 31) from ISO 646 and the C1 control set (control characters 
mapped to bytes 128 to 159) from ISO 6429, resulting in full 8-bit character maps with most, if not all, bytes 
assigned. These sets have ISO-8859-n as their preferred MIME name or, in cases where a preferred MIME name isn't 
specified, their canonical name. Many people use the terms ISO/IEC 8859-n and ISO-8859-ninterchangeably. ISO/IEC 
8859-11 did not get such a charset assigned, presumably because it was almost identical to TIS 620.

and the Unicode code points 0x0080-0x009F are used for the C1-control-set.
